September 28, 1796, Massachusetts Spy, Or Worcester Gazette. Printed by Leonard Worcester for Isaiah Thomas. 4 pages, large folio, untrimmed. "President's Resignation," more commonly known as Washington's Farewell Address, takes up most of page 2 and concludes on page 3. The nation's first President announces his retirement from politics and explains why he decided against running for a third term. In the address, Washington cites many of the achievements of his administrations. The speech was never delivered orally by Washington but did appear in various newspapers. Print is a bit light in one area of the text, but does not detract from readability. A historic issue and a must-have for the collector of Washingtoniana!
Estimated Value $1,000 - 1,500.

Realized $1,093
